OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Two people are dead and another two are injured following an accident involving a stolen vehicle and police pursuit from Norman to Oklahoma City Friday morning, according to News 9.

The accident began after a stolen F-150 pickup truck was spotted by the owner of the vehicle, driving northbound on I-35. A police pursuit began, though it ended within a few minutes after the suspect collided with several vehicles on SE 59th Street, near the interstate.

A driver of a black SUV then collided with the Ford pickup, resulting in the death of the suspect at the scene and of a 69-year-old, who died at the hospital of injuries sustained during the collision.

Another two people were injured in the collision, though their condition was not immediately available.

Authorities have not yet released the identity of the victims.
